    Just to check... I can host a component even if I didn't build it in the first place?

    Yes. The magic is in the vmod.

    The URL is stored in the MFT file which is embedded in the rfcmp. When you install the rfcmp it extracts this MFT file to your Installed folder. My tool simply modifies the URL within the MFT file in your Installed folder. So the original rfcmp file is not touched. Now when you build a vmod it picks up the URL from the modified MFT file and then embeds it in the vmod. So you don't have to modify the original rfcmp or repackage it or anything like that.

    One other thing to note is that your download link points to the original rfcmp file so although your local installed copy has been modified, clients connecting to your server will be downloading the original unmodified copy. So you will no be distributing modified content. The only thing getting modified is the MFT file stored in your Installed folder which gets picked up and placed in your vmod.

    Just a note from a happy customer.

    The URL in the MFT is your account URL from Noel's website. It's alway's the same.

    So if you accidently screw up a link... you can fix, change, add a new link in Noel's website or in the tool without creating a new Vmod or taking down the server.
    Just remove the old and register a new link and done. :)

    That's magic!!! ;)

    Good Morning Noel:

    I have a couple of dedicated servers trying to use your software..They keep getting the following error.


    It is a unhandled error and the pop up is a Net Framework error

    OS is Server 2008 r2 x64 all updates are current...and all net framework is current.

    Hope you can take a look at the below..and send me some guidance

    Thanks

    Dave

    I think they mistyped their password and I had a bug where the tool would crash if you mistype your password. I fixed this bug and updated the version to 1.0.0.20. Have them download the tool and try again.

    Hi Noel, thanks again for this tool. I just had to replace the links for all our Get-Mod hosted content and it was done in no time. Being able to doubleclick stuff in particular was a huge timesaver. Kudos for such a well designed user interface!
    Only one thing I stumbled across that I couldn't find an answer for: is there a way to permanently remove old content from the list (other than using the 'installed only' checkbox)?

    Right now no but I want to add this because I just went through and deleted a whole bunch of old content and it was a pain in the butt.

    Okay, like I said, yesterday I went in and deleted a bunch of old VEC content (because several leagues are using our content and the least I can do is remove links to old content so at least they aren't eating away at my Dropbox account) and it was a pain in the butt with the current system. It took way too many steps to do this. So I added a new "Unregister" button which will let you unregister all links associated with a component with one click. So now you just select the components you want to unregister and then click the button. You can also uncheck the "Installed only" checkbox to see "all" the components that you have ever registered with your account and then register those if you want. We had hundreds of orphaned components registered.

    Edit: BTW, thanks DocJones for the feedback!

    Did everything as the tutorial says but when I try to join the server, it says MOD download failed. Should I upload the Vmod in somewhere? How do I solve it?

    You need to place the vmod in the default packages folder and then restart the server.

    Hi Noel,

    I seem to be having a bit of an issue with the GetMod Manager at the moment, following the release of the latest rF2 build. I'm not sure if the issue is simply coincidental, due to the new build, or as a result of another issue. Upon opening the application I'm asked to select a DataPath, however once it has loaded there is no working directory. The same happens if I try to browse for and select a DataPath once the application has loaded. Any ideas what the issue may be? To give you an idea of what I'm doing, the DataPath I'm trying to add is: D:\Games\rFactor2\Server1

    Many thanks, and I hope to hear from you soon.

    Daiman

    Ps. It also does not work if the GetMod Manager application is placed in the Bin32 (or Bin64) folder.
    Pps. The reason why I think the new rF2 build may be at fault is because I have now been using the application for quite some time (probably over a year), and this is the first time that such an issue has occurred.

    Thanks for the response Mikk. :) Unfortunately the install is on a managed server, where the installs are on drive D:, and I don't have the necessary permissions to move them to drive C:. I also have a similar problem on my local machine, where my rF2 install is on the B: drive, but I can't move it to my C: drive in this case because I only use this as an OS drive and it's almost full. So I'm a bit stuck at the moment. :confused:
